What pushed Florida mattress maker to donate 100 beds to the United Way?

GREENVILLE, Fla. – Compass Sleep Products is lending a hand to the United Way of the Big Bend by donating 100 mattresses to the organization in Florida to help families impacted by Hurricane Idalia last month.

The United Way will distribute vouchers to the families, who will have up to three months to redeem them for the mattresses. Voucher recipients will go to the Compass factory showroom to pick up the bed.

“So many families throughout the state were impacted, but none more than our neighbors in Madison and Taylor counties,” Ricky Riley, chief executive and general manager of Compass Sleep Products. “It has always been our mission to help our community, and witnessing the consequences of this hurricane compelled us to take action. We appreciate the help of the United Way in administering this program for us.”

Riley said the three-month time span gives people impacted by the storm the time needed to rebuild their homes before picking up a mattress.

The United Way of the Big Bend has taken a leadership role in this part of Florida by gathering resources and activating solutions through a number of partner organizations in the area.

“We are grateful to be receiving a very generous donation from Compass Sleep Products,” said Berneice Cox, president and CEO of the United Way chapter. “Its neighbors-helping-neighbors generosity is so appreciated. They join a very special list of Blue Chip Florida businesses who are stepping up and helping out after this devastating hurricane.”
